Wood vs. Hybrid

Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

Hey guys,

I currently have my 10.5 driver + 3 wood + #4 hybrid. Now do I keep that setup and add a #3 hybrid, or, get a 5 wood and remove the hybrids?

any response quickly would be much appreciated so I. An pull the trigger ordering either way.

 

oh, and my irons (when they arrive) are 5-PW

I keep both, I have a 5 wood AND a #3 Hybrid, I change depending on weather and course.

And have actually made up my mind depending how am hitting them on the range while warming up!!

Even though they are similar in distance for me their apex is different and I can shape them differently. It really does come down to the course and how im hitting each of them on the range.

Maybe it’s the shaft but, I hit my 5 wood longer and lower (Callaway XR16, with Fujikura Speeder Evolution 565 Red standard length)

My Hybrid is a PING G-410 with the standard Alta CB shaft + 1/2 inch, I hit it higher but about 5-10 yards shorter

I am just a shade longer off the tee maybe 4 yards at most with my 5W, but off the deck they go just about the same distance. Maybe I'm more comfortable swinging my hybrid?!

I just recently put a 5 wood in the bag this year and absolutely LOVE it!  It's very easy to hit and the ball flight is exactly what I have been looking for.  I put my 3 hybrid in the garage.

LOL, I did the exact opposite - canned my 5w and put in a 3-brid (19*).  Able to hit it low off the tee and control trajectory better than the 5w.

I sort of did that with my Heavenwood, which is a 7w equivalent. I go driver - 4w - Hwood then right to my 5i. No hybrids.

I remember a time when everyone used a 1,3,and 5 wood no questions asked. I guess we have come full circle.

Sometimes we need to teach the clubs a lesson by grounding them and putting them into the garage or closet.  🤪🙂

Thinking of doing the same thing - is the loft on your 5w the same as your hybrid?

Interesting you say that, so I had a 3 wood that is 15* then I had a 2 iron that was 18* , then 3 hybrid at 20* and 4 hybrid at 22*.  My gapping was too close on the high end of my bag.  My 2 iron I only hit off of a tee but couldn't hit it off the deck.  So I went with a 5 wood (I hit my woods pretty good) at 18*.  I took out my 2 iron and my 3 hybrid.  My bag now looks like: 

Driver 9.5* 280 plus

3 wood 14.5* 250-260 yds

5 wood 18* 230-250 yds

4 hybrid 22* 225 yds

This set up is working really well for me.  I can control the 5 wood and have a ton of confidence in this club.  With solid shots, there are not a lot of par 5's that I can't reach in two.  This may be you, it may not, but I have to say, the 5 wood is quickly becoming my favorite club in the bag!!!!

One thing that I'm wondering is when to choose the 5w over the 3w. 

How do you make this decision? Is there a situation when you only/usually choose one over the other? Has your 3w become irrelevant?
